Well, what you need to figure out is: [a] Whether the injector continues getting power after the engine is warm - if this is the case, then it's not the injector's fault it stays open. and if [a] is true, [b] Whether this is caused by a bad temperature sensor. Measure the resistance across the temp. sensor with the engine cold. Measure the voltage across the injector with the engine cold. Warm up to normal running temp (20 mins). Repeat the measurements. If the resistance of the sensor is still the same, then it's a failed sensor. If not, then you may have a short somewhere. -- Grunff
